GENERAL INFORMATION. 



ADniSSION AND ATTENDANCE. 

Every applicant for admission must present evidence of 
good moral character; and if from any other institution, a 
certificate of honorable dismission from the proper author- 
ities. 

After passing satisfactory examinations in the studies 
required for admission to the Freshman or any advanced 
class, the candidate for admission shall matriculate, by 
subscribing to the laws of the University and by the pay- 
ment of a matriculation fee of three dollars. 

All students in the University are required to attend 
daily prayers, religious services on the Lord's day, and 
such exercises of instruction and recitation as may be as- 
signed to them. 

Students regularly advanced with their classes in the 
courses of study are required to return promptly to the 
University at the opening of each session. 

AID AND SELF=SUPPORT. 

Lincoln University was founded to bring the benefits of 
a liberal Christian education within the reach of worthy 
colored young men. 

This end is promoted here by providing convenient 
buildings for study and residence, where young men who 
comply with the conditions of admission are welcomed 
and made comfortable, and by the diligent training of 
the students in all the parts of such an education. 

All the income of the Institution, from endowment and 
from annual contributions, is used in favor of the students 
to keep the necessary charges for instruction and for living 
down to the lowest possible figure. The benefits provided 

(7) 



5 CATALOGUE OF LINCOLN UNIVERSITY. 

here are within the reach of all who are willing to combine 
self-support with aid. 

In this Institution the full college bill is only $121.50. 

Every charge in the college bill is essential. If the full 
amount is not paid by the students or for them, the benev- 
olent fund supplied by the friends of the work must be 
divided among a smaller number. Any student using 
more than his necessities require is taking funds for his 
own uses to which others have a better claim. His ex- 
pensive or wasteful habits keep some other young man in 
ignorance, and prevent, perhaps, a better workman than 
himself from entering the harvest field. To take any 
amount of such benevolent funds in excess of strict neces- 
sity is selfish and dishonest. No good man will gratify 
his own pride or indolence at the expense of another man's 
usefulness. No student could be regarded as a friend of 
the colored people who would for his own enjoyment 
hinder other willing workers from the preparation which 
would give them the opportunity of usefulness. 

Each student is under obligations of fairness and honor 
and honesty, and also of benevolence, to do all he can to 
support himself, and thus aid others who are equally with 
himself deserving of encouragement. 



PERSONAL EXPENSES. 

An exact estimate of the personal expenses of a student, 
above what is included in the session bills, cannot be made. 

He must have text books for each year of the course. 

He must have a lamp, and supply it with oil, to add the 
evenings to the days of study. 

The purchase and repair of clothing is a recurring ne- 
cessity. 

He cannot travel to and from the University without 
money to pay his fare. 

If he becomes sick there is the doctor's bill and the ex- 
pense of medicine. 

The literary societies justly require annual contribu- 
tions. 



CATALOGUE OF LINCOLN UNIVERSITY. 9 

The University cannot aid the student in these expenses 
either by gifts or loans. 

It is not the purpose of its patrons to relieve the student 
from the necessity of making provision for his own per- 
sonal wants. 

Herein especially they exact his co-operation. 

Each student must provide beforehand to meet these 
necessities, or they will distress him. 

His indifference or carelessness procures his suffering. 

He should carefully estimate them, and write them 
down and sum them up, and keep the aggregate before 
his thoughts. 

And besides securing home assistance, he should be in- 
dustrious in his vacations to increase his honest earnings in 
every lawful way, and should honorably save them for these 
uses. To spend his earnings in superfluities or in extrava- 
gances is to squander them and to barter his education 
for his enjoyments. 

After every effort and economy he will not escape the 
discipline of want. In enduring this discipline he is prac- 
ticing a virtue. 

A manly struggle will help to subdue pride and cultivate 
self-reliance and trust in God. 

In a student struggling with poverty for an education 
any luxurious indulgence is a disabling vice. He must 
conquer it, or it will cripple him in his equipments and in 
his powers. 

His wise friends may sympathize with him in his trials, 
but they will not excuse him from the acquisition of self- 
denial, and thereby of self-control. 

The common judgment is that HE WHO WILL NOT ENDURE 
THE TRIAL IS NOT WORTH THE HELP. 

Cigarette smoking is prohibited. 

An smoking in the halls and public rooms is forbidden. 

The whole tobacco habit is discouraged. 

The use of distilled or fermented liquors is prohibited. 

Many benevolent friends of the Negro are co-operating 
with the Trustees and Faculty in providing aid for those 
who will use their education for the good of others. Care- 



10 CATALOGUE OF LINCOLN UNIVERSITY. 

ful discrimination is exercised in directing this aid to in- 
dividuals, so as not to weaken the sense of personal respon- 
sibility and self-reliance. Those who can pay their own 
bills have only to comply with the regulations and they 
will be admitted to the standing in the classes for which 
their previous training has fitted them; but no earnest 
young man of good abilities and good moral character 
should be discouraged from seeking the advantages which 
are here offered. Applicants should apply for admission 
to the President, or to some member of the Faculty, and 
state in their application their purpose in seeking an edu- 
cation, what progress they have made in study, and their 
ability to meet the expenses of education. 

BOARDING. 

The students board in clubs, or in boarding houses ad- 
jacent to the University. The cost of board cannot be 
fixed at an unvarying rate from year to year. During 
the current year board has been furnished for eight dollars 
per month. 

LIBRARY. 

Through the generosity of a friend a Library building 
is to be erected on the campus, and will be ready for the 
use of the University during the next academical year. 

The Library now contains fourteen thousand volumes, 
besides four thousand magazines and pamphlets. 

An endowment for the Library, which would provide 
for the purchase of the best books of recent and current 
publication and render it a thoroughly efficient, working 
Library, making the contents correspond with the new 
structure, is very much to be desired. 

READING ROOH. 

The Reading Room, which is open every day (except 
Sabbaths), and which is supplied with a number of daily 
and weekly papers and monthly and quarterly reviews, will 
also be located more suitably in the new Library Building.

REGULATIONS. 

The course of study in the Collegiate Department occu- 
pies four years. 

Applicants for the Freshman Class must be at least fif- 
teen years of age. 

Candidates for advanced standing will be examined in 
the studies previously pursued by the class which they 
propose to enter. 

At the end of each session public examinations of all 
the classes are held. Absence from an examination, ex- 
cept for sufficient reason, sustained by vote of the Faculty, 
will be regarded as a serious delinquency. 

At the close of each year all the classes are examined, 
either orally or in writing, in the studies of that year. 

The rank of a student in his class depends on his grade 
in his recitations and examinations; on his punctuality and 
constancy in attendance upon all exercises of instruction. 
His deportment in all his relations as a student are made 
the subject of considerate attention. No student of 
known immoral character would be awarded a diploma 
from this Institution. 

In determining the final rank of a Senior his grades 
in the Senior year are combined with the grades of the 
previous collegiate years.

Bunyan, Milton, and Shakespeare are taken as represen- 
tative English authors, and during the Freshman, Sopho- 
more, and Junior years selections from their works are 
studied with the care usually bestowed on the Latin and 
Greek classics. This course is accompanied by full in- 
struction, with exercises in higher Grammar, Philology, 
and Rhetoric. 

During the latter half of the Junior year and through- 
out the Senior year, the history of English Literature is 
studied by text book, along with lectures, and direct 
examination, as far as possible, of the standard English 
authors of all ages. Essays are required in all the classes. 

LOGIC. 

Special attention is paid to the nature and formation of 
notions, as the materials of which judgments are made up, 
and upon the proper use of which the correctness of 
reasoning depends. 

Until the student has attained a good degree of facility 
in apprehending concrete objects by the whole assemblage 
of their various inhering, and especially of their character- 
istic qualities, the mind cannot hold its perceptions in any 
harmony of thought, nor use them with a correct discrim- 
ination of their congruities and incongruities. The fact of 
the conjunction of different qualities in the same physical 
object cognized by the different senses, and of the union 
of several elements in a complex object of thought differ- 
entiated by cognitive perception, is made familiar by hold- 
ing such physical objects before the attention for a full 
survey, and by exacting a careful analysis of such complex 
abstracts as responsibility, wisdom, liberty. This intro- 
duction to Logic is taught in the first session of the Junior 
year. Dr. McCosh's Logic is used as a text book, and 
the students are trained in the line of his distinctions to 



CATALOGUE OF LINCOLN UNIVERSITY. 23 

form and improve the notions which they must use in all 
judgments. 

In the second session the students are exercised in the 
analyses and transformations to which propositions are 
subjected as the data of immediate reasoning, and in order 
to their interpretation as premises to be employed in ar- 
gument. 

The logical acumen and skill of the students is promoted 
by exercises in common fallacies, and by the discussion of 
topics of current interest. And they are trained in the 
application of the laws of thought to the common maxims 
and judgments of men. 

PSYCHOLOGY. 

The course in Psychology includes all that is embraced 
in the cognitions, the emotions, the will, and the moral 
power. In conducting this important and extensive de- 
partment of study a wide and judicious range of reading 
is favored. 

The various topics are discussed in lectures and in oral 
examinations in the class room. The doctrine of the 
reality of existence and of the legitimate certainty of 
human knowledge is strenuously taught, and it is believed 
that the students become well grounded in the conviction 
that the data of consciousness are not less valid as a 
foundation for mental science than are the data of sense 
perception for physical science. 

All cognitions, whether in the form of sense perception 
or self perception, or of the abstract perceptions, such as 
space and time, are thoroughly analyzed; and the convic- 
tion of reality in each of these spheres of cognition is justi- 
fied as both rational and obligatory. 

The emotions are studied in the natural classes as lan- 
guage presents them and consciousness recognizes and 
distinguishes them. First, the responsive emotions, in 
such groups as those of fear, sorrow, and shame; second, 
the stimulative emotions, in such groups as those of anger 
and pride; third, the desiderate emotions, in such groups 
as those of cupidity, hope, and love. 



24 CATALOGUE OF LINCOLN UNIVERSITY. 

The will is studied psychologically rather than ethically, 
as manifesting its nature in all acts of human decision, 
judgmatically, preferentially, and purposively. 

In all these departments of study the main object is to 
familiarize the students with the facts of his mental life, in 
the confidence that no agnostical or skeptical theory can 
find place where the real facts are clearly discerned and 
completely understood. 

riORAL SCIENCE. 

The departments of Psychology lead to Moral Science as 
their noblest application. Here the student is directed to 
study and apply the law of right and duty as resting on 
the authority of God; whose will, revealed in whatever 
way, is the law both of all opinion and of all obedience, 
and is as unchangeable as His holy character. 

THE ENGLISH BIBLE. 

The Authorized Version of the English Bible is studied 
by all the classes in all the departments of the University. 
The minion i2mo. reference edition of the American Bible 
Society is an inexpensive and suitable text book. The 
student needs also Cruden's Concordance, unabridged, 
and a reliable Bible Dictionary. 

For admission to the Freshman Class applicants are re- 
quired to pass a satisfactory examination in Genesis and 
the Gospel of Mark. 

During the collegiate years the course of study embraces 
the historical and poetical portions of the Bible and New 
Testament. Special attention is given to the mutual re- 
lations of the several books, and especially their presenta- 
tions of the different aspects of one plan of salvation by 
Jesus Christ. The committing of Scripture to memory 
is regarded as an important part of the course. 

HATHEHATICS. 

The Freshman year and the first term of the Sophomore 
year are devoted to the study of Algebra. The text book 
is Wells' University Algebra. 



CATALOGUE OF LINCOLN UNIVERSITY. 25 

In Geometry special emphasis is laid upon the demon- 
stration of original theorems and problems. 

The essential principles of Trigonometry are carefully 
studied, together with their application to the measure- 
ment of heights and the surveying of land. Instruction 
is given in the practical use of surveying instruments, in- 
cluding the determination of heights and the measurement 
of areas. 

The course in Analytic Geometry includes the study of 
the subject as given in Briggs' or Wentworth's Analytic 
Geometry. 

NATURAL SCIENCE. 

Science, as studied at present in the University, em- 
braces Physics, Physical Geography, Chemistry, Geology, 
and Astronomy. 

Physics is taught throughout the Sophomore year and 
during the first term of the Junior year. It is taught by 
lectures, illustrated during the entire course by numerous 
experiments. The apparatus possessed by this depart- 
ment is quite valuable, and growing rapidly more so 
through gifts of money by the friends of the Institution 
and the annual appropriation set apart by the Board of 
Trustees. 

The floors of all the scientific rooms rise in steps from 
the lecture table towards the rear, in order that all exper- 
iments may be readily seen by the students. 

Physiology is taught in the Junior year along with the 
allied branches of Anatomy and Hygiene. The lectures 
are illustrated by skeleton, charts, plates, and casts, and 
supplemented by lectures with the oxy-hydrogen lantern, 
in which photograms and microscopic slides are thrown 
on the screen. It is the aim to make this course of prac- 
tical use in after life. 

Chemistry is also taught in the Junior year, by exper- 
iment mainly, the lectures and experiments being sup- 
plementary to each other. The University possesses a 
very valuable chemical apparatus. 



26 CATALOGUE OF LINCOLN UNIVERSITY. 

Geology and Astronomy are studied during the Senior 
year. 

Geology is taught by lectures illustrated by specimens 
of rocks, minerals, and fossils, also lantern and microscopic 
slides. 

Astronomy is mainly studied from the text book (Pro- 
fessor Young's). It is supplemented by lectures, lantern 
slides, and the telescope. The telescope possessed by the 
University has a four-inch objective and seven different 
eye pieces, ranging from 67 to 300 diameters. It is very 
useful in the study of the heavens. It is the aim of the 
instructor to give the students such a knowledge of Geol- 
ogy and Astronomy as every educated man ought to have, 
and sufficient to form the groundwork for future study 
should any student desire to pursue them further. 

PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY. 

The renowned Professor Guyot, of Princeton College, 
the master of his day in Scientific Geography, elevated 
this subject from the mere rudiments to a prominent de- 
partment in science. His text books are recommended 
for reading, and the various subjects are discussed and un- 
folded as a separate course throughout the Sophomore 
year. This branch of study is taught by Prof. J. B. 
Rendall. 

HISTORY. 

In the Freshman year a study is made of the general 
history of the world from the beginning of ancient history 
to the present century. The aim of this course is to make 
the map of history stand out clearly before each student, so 
that he may not only have a comprehensive view of the 
history of the world as a whole, but also a distinct idea 
of the relative and causal connection between the great 
events of history. The text book used is Freeman's Gen- 
eral Sketch. 

In the Sophomore class the History of England is 
studied. Special attention is given to tracing the great 
social, political, and religious movements which have af- 



CATALOGUE OF LINCOLN UNIVERSITY. 2J 

fected the English people, and have left a permanent mark 
upon their life and institutions. The text book used is 
J. R. Green's "Short History of the English People." 
While text books are thus used, much freedom is exer- 
cised in the class room in the discussion of important ques- 
tions which may arise. 

POLITICAL ECONOflY. 

The principles of Political Economy are studied in the 
second session of the Senior year. Special attention is 
given to the practical features of this study. The text 
book used is "F. A. Walker's Briefer Course of Political 
Economy." 

CLASSICAL GREEK. 

Instruction in this department extends through the 
whole collegiate course. Special effort is made in the 
later years of the course to rise above details of construc- 
tion to the criticism of the thought and style of the au- 
thors read, and to secure to the student the advantages of 
exactness and precision in his own thinking, and of read- 
iness and propriety in expression. 

LATIN. 

The authors read are Caesar, Sallust, Virgil, Horace, 
Cicero, and Tacitus. The course also includes Mythol- 
ogy, Roman History, Arnold's Latin Prose Composition, 
and selections from various authors. 

The students in the early part of their course are thor- 
oughly drilled in the analysis of sentences and grammatical 
structure. After this the questions are largely phil- 
ological, and derivation receives special attention. 

When the poetic authors are reached the students give 
attention to versification. The rhetorical suggestions of 
Horace and Cicero are noted. 

Thus the various departments of instruction are made 
to help each other. The latter portions of the course fur- 
nish occasion to bring out the style and spirit of their 
authors.

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

There are two Literary Societies, the Garnet Literary 
Association and the Philosophian Society, to one of which 
every student in the college belongs. They meet every 
Friday evening in their respective halls for current business 
and for literary exercises, consisting of essays, orations, 
and debates. These societies secure an admirable training 
in self-restraint and self-command, in parliamentary proce- 
dure, and in aptness in studied and impromptu speech. 
All the members are required to take part in these exer- 
cises. The Societies are governed by laws adopted by 
themselves, and administered by officers chosen from their 
own members, under the general supervision of the 
Faculty of Arts.

ENGLISH BIBLE. 

The design of the Board of Trustees in establishing this 
Chair is to secure that no student shall be graduated from 
the Theological Department of this Institution without 
acquiring a thorough knowledge of the Bible in the Eng- 
lish language. 

To this end the Board of Trustees has enjoined it upon 
the Faculty of Theology to require the students under the 
direction of the incumbent of this Chair to read the whole 
Bible carefully and studiously, and to commit to memory 
such passages as may be assigned to them with this design. 

Instruction is given on the versions of the sacred Scrip- 
tures, especially on the history of the English Version. 
The fourfold record of the life of Christ, the Epistles of 
Paul, and the Prophetical Books of the Old and New 
Testaments are carefully taught. The information is im- 
parted in a practical form, that it may be of service to the 
young men as teachers, preachers, and pastors. Before 
entering the Theological course the student is expected 
to be familiar with the historical and poetical portions of 
the Scriptures. And while in this department they should 
read the whole Bible with studious and reverent attention. 

CHURCH GOVERNHENT. 

The various forms of Church Government which exist 
in the Church are minutely considered and compared with 
the principles of government laid down in the Bible. 



36 CATALOGUE OF LINCOLN UNIVERSITY. 

The details of Presbyterian Polity and Modes of Dis- 
cipline are theoretically and practically taught. 

HEBREW. 

Hebrew is taught throughout the three years. 

The Junior year is given to acquiring an exact knowl- 
edge of the language, the blackboard being constantly 
used in teaching. The grammatical peculiarities, the 
idioms of the language are mastered, and a vocabulary 
comprising Hebrew words of most frequent occurrence 
is gradually acquired. These are practically applied from 
the beginning in converting English sentences into He- 
brew, either as impromptu work upon the board in the 
class room or as home exercises to be corrected afterwards 
before the class. 

Dr. Green's Hebrew Grammar is in the hands of each 
student as a permanent reference book. During the lat- 
ter part of the session the students translate portions from 
Genesis and I. Samuel; also some selections as sight 
reading. 

In the Middle year a careful exegetical study is made 
of some portion of the Prophetical Books — this year the 
books of Zechariah and Malachi. Sight reading is pur- 
sued in other portions of the Prophetical Books. Intro- 
ductory lectures are delivered upon the Minor Prophets, 
endeavoring to set forth the date, authorship, circum- 
stances, and the exact import of each book. 

In the Senior year some portion of the Poetical Books 
is studied exegetically — this year The Psalms. Other 
selections from the Poetical Books are read at sight 
reading. 

Introductory lectures are delivered upon the Poetical 
Books. 

Chief emphasis is placed upon the Exegesis, not only 
as a means of discovering the exact meaning of the Old 
Testament Scriptures, but also for homiletical purposes. 
Instruction is also given regarding the Hebrew text, the 
early manuscripts and versions, the Targums, and the 
Talmud. A special class has been conducted in Aramaic; 



CATALOGUE OF LINCOLN UNIVERSITY. ^J 

portions of the Targums and the Book of Daniel have 
been read. Grammar, "Riggs' Manual of the Chaldee 
Language." 

If desired, there is a Special Class in Arabic for students 
having mission work in Africa in view. 

CHURCH HISTORY. 

Church History is taught throughout the Middle and 
Senior years, covering in the two years the History of the 
Christian Church from Apostolic times to the present. 

The aim of the course is not to notice every detail, but 
to place such emphasis upon important events and tran- 
sitions as will make each student able to state clearly and 
exactly the cause and nature of all such events, and to 
enable him to take an intelligent survey of the whole field 
of the Church's existence. 

Each student is required to write a carefully-prepared 
thesis upon some assigned subject within the sphere of 
the year's work, requiring independent research. 

Middle Year. — From Apostolic times to the Protestant 
Reformation. 

Senior Year. — From the beginning of the Protestant 
Reformation to the present. 

The text book in both years is "Fisher's History of the 
Christian Church." 

NEW TESTAHENT LITERATURE. 

The manuscripts and canon of the New Testament. 
Special introduction to the New Testament Books. The 
Life of our Lord and Harmony of the Gospels. New Test- 
ament Grammar and Exegesis. 

PASTORAL THEOLOGY. 

The course of study in Pastoral Theology will cover 
two years of the curriculum, and has been arranged with 
a view to the practical treatment of every phase of ac- 
tivity and influence which belongs to the Christian pas- 
torate. 



38 CATALOGUE OF LINCOLN UNIVERSITY. 

Special emphasis will be given to the subjective training 
of candidates for the holy office; and, with this end in 
view, the Pastoral Epistles will be carefully studied at the 
beginning of the course. 

CHRISTIAN EVIDENCES. 

The range of studies under this head will include, in 
general, the grounds of Theistic and Christian belief. 

The aim will be to present in connected form the evi- 
dences — drawn from all sources — of natural and revealed 
religion. 

In connection with the study of Biblical Archaeology, 
one session will be devoted to the evidences of the truth 
of the sacred Scriptures from the monumental records of 
the past. 

BIBLICAL ARCHEOLOGY. 

A definite and accurate knowledge of the social, re- 
ligious, and political life of the nations of the East in Bible 
times will be the object of the study. 

Special attention will be given to the rapidly accumu- 
lating testimonies of modern discovery and research; and, 
whenever necessary, the subject matter of the text book 
will be supplemented by lectures and stereopticon illus- 
trations. 

The topography and general features of the lands of the 
Bible will be carefully studied in the first session of the 
Junior year. 

Analyses of the subjects treated, outline maps, and es- 
says on special themes will be required during the course. 

SYSTEriATIC THEOLOGY. 

Systematic Theology is begun in the Junior year and 
continued through the entire course. For the present 
Rev. William R. Bingham, D. D., is conducting this 
course of instruction. 'The Outlines of Theology," by 
Dr. A. A. Hodge, is used as a text book. 

The students are diligently instructed in the system of 
theology embodied in our Westminster Standards. The 



CATALOGUE OF LINCOLN UNIVERSITY. 39 

exercises of the class room often assume the form of 
mutual question and answer for the sake of a clearer in- 
sight into the difficulties and their more satisfactory colla- 
tion. The aim is always to trace the truth received to its 
source in the Bible as the very Word of God. 

ECCLESIASTICAL LATIN. 

One hour a week in Ecclesiastical Latin is assigned to 
the Junior Class. The day has not yet come when Prot- 
estant Christians can afford to lay aside the knowledge 
of the tongue in which the Latin Church publishes its 
dogmas and decrees to the world for information, if not 
for obedience. Our own Church still exacts a Latin 
thesis from her candidates for the ministry. As a part of 
this course such a thesis is required of each member of the 
Senior Class. 

SACRED RHETORIC. 

Broadus' "Preparation and Delivery of Sermons" is 
used as a text book in the Junior year. In the Middle and 
Senior years instruction is given by lectures, by the an- 
alysis of texts and the making of plans, and by criticism 
of the sermons delivered by the students. Elocution will 
be taught to the students of the Middle and Senior years. 

During the Middle and Senior years students are re- 
quired to preach without manuscript.

THEOLOGICAL AND HISSIONARY SOCIETY. 

The Theological and Missionary Society meets every 
Friday evening for exercises connected with ministerial 
and missionary work. The room occupied by the Society 
is supplied with a library of general and special commen- 
taries and furnished with religious and missionary period- 
icals. Missionaries from time to time are invited to 
address the students of the University, and a general mis- 
sionary spirit is cultivated and promoted. During the 
current year a delightful and profitable Missionary Con- 
ference was held at the University from January 8th to 
15th, with especial reference to the proposed appointment 
by the Board of Foreign Missions of two missionaries as 
soon as possible to Africa. Dr. John Gillespie, of the 
Foreign Board, a Committee of the Presbytery of Ches- 
ter, a Committee of the Board of Trustees, and several of 
Lincoln's most useful graduates now in the field, united 
with professors and students in the exercises of this Con- 
ference. 



GENERAL STATEMENT. 



Lincoln University is in Chester County, Pennsylvania, 
half a mile from Lincoln University Station, on the Phila- 
delphia and Baltimore Central Railroad. That part of 
Chester County in which the University is situated is 
notably free from malarial and pulmonary diseases. The 
Institution is well removed from associations which tend 
to prevent high literary attainments and hinder the forma- 
tion of a high moral character. The post office, where 
the Resident Professors should be addressed, is 

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, 

Chester County, Pa. 

The corporate title of this Institution is "Lincoln Uni- 
versity" Bequests intended to promote the work of this 
University will be legally valid under that title. To the 
title add the place to prevent confusion with other insti- 
tutions having the same prefix. 

The first charter of this Institution was granted by the 
State of Pennsylvania, under the title of "Ashmun Insti- 
tute," in 1854. In 1866 the title was changed by amend- 
ment of the charter to "Lincoln University." In 1897 
the control of the Theological Department was given to 
the Presbyterian Church of the United States of America 
both in respect to instruction and property.

tilation has been carefully regarded. The Chemical and 
Physical rooms are in the basement, and have concrete 
floors rising toward the rear to give a full view of exper- 
iments. They are furnished with water pipes and chimney 
ventilation. Provision has been made in them for the

AlflS AND RESULTS. 

Among the instrumentalities through which the friends 
of the Negro may convey to him the blessings of educa- 
tion, Lincoln University especially deserves the confidence 
of the Christian public. She was the first to enter this 
field. Lincoln University was chartered to give a liberal 
scientific, classical, and theological education to colored 
youth of the male sex in 1854, six years before the war 
which resulted in emancipation. A liberal Christian edu- 
cation was the policy adopted by Lincoln University for 
the elevation of our colored population before the body 
of them became freedmen. 

We are still doing a large share of the higher work. 
Worthy applicants are knocking at our doors, eager for 
the benefits here afforded. To the extent of our re- 
sources we turn no worthy man away who desires an edu- 
cation for the sake of the good he can do with it. 

It is certain that colored men will exert a large, and it 
may fairly be assumed, a controlling influence in forming 
and directing the currents of opinion, and the gulf stream 
movements of industrial, social, educational, and religious 
progress among these increasing millions of our popula- 
tion. It cannot be reasonably expected that their leaders 
should guide them along the lines of the common life of 
our whole people unless they are themselves educated, 
their principles established, and their opinions moulded in 
intelligent, conscious, and consenting harmony with the 
public life of the nation. 



CATALOGUE OF LINCOLN UNIVERSITY. 47 

Their wise friends will not attempt to force their edu- 
cation into narrow channels while the education of the 
more favored classes, as conducted in our colleges and 
seminaries of learning, is constantly expanded by an al- 
most boundless generosity. To withhold the means of 
their liberal education, while we lavishly use them for the 
education of others, will suggest the thought that we do 
not design to fit them for the position to which the neces- 
sities of the nation raised them. The trusted leader of 
colored troops would have to be drilled in all the tactics 
of modern warfare, and the leaders of this unorganized, 
agitated army of colored thinkers, who are now meditat- 
ing how they will vote and what they will undertake, 
equally need to be drilled in all that makes thinking exact 
and safe. If their leaders are to co-operate with the 
leaders of this nation, they must be helped into agreement 
with them by a similar education. 

It is the purpose of the Trustees and Faculty of Lincoln 
University to communicate, without stint and without 
delay, all the advantages of a liberal scientific, classical, 
and Christian education, according to our means and abil- 
ity, to young men who may become their leaders, in the 
conviction that this is fair to them; that their needs are 
the same as ours; and that as God has given them the 
ability to acquire all the parts of such education, making 
no difference between them and us in natural endow- 
ments, so He will give them grace to use the power 
which accompanies education for the enlightenment and 
moral elevation of their own people and for the highest 
good of our whole people. 

More than five hundred young men have been sent out 
from the Preparatory Department and from the lower 
classes of the Collegiate Department, many of whom are 
engaged in important positions as teachers in the South- 
ern States. 

Five hundred and fifty-four have been graduated from 
the Collegiate Department, after a course of instruction 
extending through four and, in many cases, seven years. 
Most of these graduates are engaged in professional and 
educational labors in the Southern States. 



48 CATALOGUE OF LINCOLN UNIVERSITY. 

Two hundred and thirty-five of the students of Lincoln 
University have received ordination as ministers in Evan- 
gelical Protestant denominations. 

Thirteen of our students have gone to Africa as mis- 
sionaries of the Cross. Two young men from South 
Africa are now in the University. 

ENDOWriENT. 

In accordance with the plan of the General Assembly 
of the Presbyterian Church for the government of the- 
ological seminaries, and upon compact with the Com- 
mittee of the General Assembly, the Board of Trustees 
has, by a change of the charter decreed by the Court of 
Common Pleas of Chester County, Pennsylvania, put the 
Theological Department of the University under the con- 
trol of the Presbyterian Church of the United States of 
America. 

The plan of the Assembly requiring the funds used for 
theological education to be under the control of the Gen- 
eral Assembly, and to be exclusively used for theological 
purposes, necessitates the full and separate endowment of 
the Theological Department. Heretofore the theological 
work has enjoyed an undivided share in the general un- 
designated income of the University. But such funds 
could not be legally put under the control of the General 
Assembly. 

The Assembly's Committee on Theological Seminaries 
recognized this necessity, and pledged their influence to 
secure from the Assembly the approval of the full endow- 
ment of the Theological Department, and the cordial 
recommendation of such endowment to its churches and 
benevolent members. Anticipating the action of the As- 
sembly at its next annual session, the Synod of Pennsyl- 
vania, at its recent meeting in Bellefonte, adopted the 
following resolution: — 

"In view of the fact that the Trustees of Lincoln Uni- 
versity have put its Theological Department completely 
under the control of the General Assembly, both in respect 
to its instruction and its endowments; therefore be it — 



CATALOGUE OF LINCOLN UNIVERSITY. 49 

"Resolved by the Synod of Pennsylvania, that Lincoln 
University, in whose work for the Freedmen we feel a 
deep interest, and in whose loyal Presbyterianism we have 
full confidence, be commended to the churches of the 
Synod of Pennsylvania and their benevolent members for 
the liberal support of its whole work, and for the special 
and separate endowment of the Theological Department." 

The separate and adequate equipment of the Theolog- 
ical Department would require an addition to our endow- 
ment of about $250,000. To this end the Board of 
Trustees has initiated a plan of endowment by which the 
friends of our colored fellow citizens and fellow Christians 
may gradually and yet speedily accomplish this desired 
result. 

The separation of the department will be made progres- 
sively as provision is made for the distinctive courses of 
instruction in both the departments of Arts and Theology. 

The additional chairs of instruction required in the The- 
ological Department will be established as reliable pro- 
vision is made for the very moderate salary of the Pro- 
fessors. 

The necessary buildings will be erected as the funds for 
that purpose shall be supplied. 

And the theological students will be aided by the per- 
manent and annual scholarships made available for their 
needs. 

And thus, while the aggregate of our needs is large, the 
friends of the cause may further it by even the smallest 
contributions. 

The property of the University held distinctively for 
theological education represents about $108,000. The in- 
come of this amount would not be sufficient for the sep- 
arate expenses of the department. 

The Committee of Endowment consists of the Rev. 
Robert F. Sample, D. D., New York City; Rev. N. G. 
Parke, D. D., Pittston, Pa.; William H. Scott, Esq., 
Germantown, Pa.; and Rev. I. N. Rendall, D. D., Lincoln 
University, Pa.

We invite any of our friends who may feel an interest 
in the thorough education of Christian ministers for our 
American population, black as well as white, to corre- 
spond with us upon this subject. We will be glad to be 
your agents in meeting this pressing want of the country 
and of the Church. 

The attention of considerate friends is invited to the fol- 
lowing statement of special wants: — 

The separate and adequate endowment and equipment 
of the Theological Department. This would require 
about $250,000. A beginning could be made with any 
contribution. 

The endowment of the Chair of Mental and Moral 
Science. 

The more adequate endowment of the existing Chairs 
of Instruction. 

The provision, by endowment, for the care and improve- 
ment of the property of the University. 

A domestic laundry. A system of safe lighting. An 
adequate water supply. A common heating apparatus. 

The completion of the one hundred Scholarships for the 
perpetual education of worthy young men, whose dili- 
gence, talents, and piety give promise of usefulness. 
Twenty-two, or one-fifth, of them have already been en- 
dowed. 

The need of apparatus for the Scientific Department, 
particularly for the branches of Physics and Chemistry. 

The whole work of Lincoln University needs immediate 
enlargement. A comparatively small addition to her 
funds would greatly increase her power for usefulness. 
Lincoln University is a living, growing Institution. It is 
a mistake to think that because her resources are increas- 
ing her needs are becoming less. Our needs are as the 
needs of the people for whom we are working. The need 
of Christian teachers and ministers is only just beginning 
to be felt, and is by no means overtaken. It is the esti- 
mate of conservative Southern educators that not more 
than one in five is fitted by education and character to 
occupy the pulpits in which they are appointed to preach

the Gospel. If we are doing any good, there is the same 
reason for increasing our efficiency. A college that has 
no wants has no vigor of life. Lincoln University would 
be recreant to her duty and opportunity if she did not en- 
large her plans in behalf of a cause so needy and so hopeful. 
The University is consecrated to the glory of God and 
the good of man. It has received the indorsement of all 
who are acquainted with its work. The friends of the 
education of "colored youth" are cordially invited to in- 
vestigate its plans and operations, and co-operate with its 
officers in conferring the benefits of a liberal and Christian 
culture on those who prize and so much need this blessing.
